Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Files opened

Indicates the total number of internal files that are currently created on the database server.


If the value of this measure is close to the Maximum File Limit measure, then, administrators should try increasing the Maximum File Limit measure.

Maximum file limit

Indicates the maximum number of file instances that can be created on the database server by default.



File usage

Indicates the percentage of files that are currently created on the database server.


A value close to 100 indicates that the maximum limit for creating the files on the database server has been reached. To reduce this value, it is necessary to increase the Maximum File Limit measure of the database server.
